Hair Loss with Cytoxan
MIBeth posted:
I'm having the worst flare of my life and have had one infusion of Cytoxan and within 7 days have lost 2/3 of my hair. Has anyone else lost their hair this quickly? I also take prednisone and methotrexate on the off weeks.

Wow, I am so sorry to hear about your hair loss. That has to be devastating. I don't know anything about that particular medication. What has your doctor got to say about this. It seems that you have quite a bit of high-powered drugs combined. I no longer take prednisone; I do take methotrexate & plaquenil along with a whole host of other meds. I hope you get some help with your flare & hair loss really soon.
